Forum Post: George Bush Sr. is a "wonderful man." - Barack Obama

Just got done watching Obama on Jimmy Fallon's show. While I disagree with Obama on many issues... I liked the slow jam bit he did with Jimmy on the show and agree with his stance on student loan interest rates and the ridiculous repubs in congress that want to increase the rates.

But let's be honest... the Obama 2012 supporters would rip anyone else a new one for calling George Bush Sr. a "wonderful man." And Obama definitely said that on Fallon's show.

Kind of an odd thing to say about George Bush Sr. And incredibly inaccurate... or does no one want to disagree with Obama on this one?

The biggest problem the nation has to solve is the new 9 11 investigation. This problem is bigger than any political party. Bush has been out of the White House for 3 years, yet the Democrats have shown no interest in opening that Pandora’s box.

Well, Viva La Bam! They are all fascist-zionist warriors, in love with each other and the organized crime, which they serve. Who cares if W sez "nukuler," like a yutz? You think HW coulda taught his boy to talk good, or better than he does, by now. As for Obama, he is a natural-born killer and ripoff, admiring one of his own kind. Difference is, Obama has a good jump shot, from the perimeter. Obama, Clinton, and both Bush-prezzies are left-handed, so blow a kiss, Barack and Billy Whizbang. Married to the mob, is Bill Clinton. Hillary is a former Goldwater Girl. Look it up; they are all in the same bed. Bill signed deregulation of courts, energy, and banks, so Barack ended up bailing the banks, like a sweetiepie Republican baby-boy should, and all his geeks forgot what Bill and the Bushes have been up to, beforehand. It takes geeks, to support any of this. Keep watching. Deregulated energy might do more cost-passing damage, than anything else, and lo and behold, when California tried to re-regulate a few years back, with Prop.80, Warren "Clyde Barrow" Beatty got up and told all the other Dummycrats to VOTE NO, on everything, so providers do what they like and pass costs, around the world.

Have you heard GHWBush talk lately? His appearance with Romney was embarrassing (to him and Romney). He asked if W. was endorsing him. Barbara tried to shush him. Obama is being kind to a senile old man. He can't be out without a keeper. It would be mean to speak ill of him at this point.

[-] 1 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 2 years ago

Mean? Let's not criticize republicans and people who create problems because that would be mean. I don't like that option.

It was an unnecessary comment from Obama. It didn't need to be said because he wasn't asked about his sentiment toward Bush.

My entire point is, had I or someone else said that about a Bush on this site or at an Obama 2012 rally, people would criticize us to the bone.

At least criticize those who are functionally alive and can do harm. Vegetables are for eating, not picking on. There are so many targets of opportunity, it would be a list of thousands. Let me know when you are done with those. Then if I am drooling on my shirt, defend me, please.

"My entire point is, had I or someone else said that about a Bush on this site or at an Obama 2012 rally, people would criticize us to the bone."

Your argument is invalid. And your comments about Bush Sr are more insulting than anything I've said about him.

And partially off topic... Castro is super old and that coach in Florida just got suspended for talking nice about him.

I need a president that points out the mistakes in history instead of playing nice.

Should they drop charges against Murdoch because he's super old?

up above you defend "low taxes" that's what I critize you for

[-] 0 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 2 years ago

Because you're not reading it correctly.

We could have lower taxes for all if we took the power away from the banks and the federal reserve. The fed creates trillions of dollars for their own private interests. If we had that power we'd be debt free and we could lower taxes as well as end inflation and pay for education, healthcare, and build infrastructure. That is my point. But if we do not take that step... then yes... taxes need to go up.

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (6629) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

Taxes are too low on the wealthy whiether we take the power or not, there is no silver bullit we let money buy too much we should change that, I have a number of posts up, nothing to do with voting just thinking take a look let me know what you think.

You've posted some goodies. I've read many of them.

thanks I know you've stopped by, and hey we agree on more than we disagree on, or at least I think so

I think pretty much everyone is seeing through this scam "election" crap at this point....

Bush Sr. rasied taxes, nuff said.

[-] 0 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 2 years ago

There you are! No surprise when it comes to your comment.

Had I been on this site calling a fraudulent hack like Bush a "wonderful man" ... you'd be chastising me to the bone.

Standard Lulz from me as usual

I have always said that I will reach out to any Republican willing to raise taxes on the rich, there just aren't any left, you know me I am what I am.

[-] 0 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 2 years ago

But there is a middle ground. Low taxes and job creation and universal healthcare.

Dennis Kucinich's HR 2990.

I like low taxes. But without HR 2990 or legislation like it... I agree the taxes on the rich need to go up. And you're right... no republican agrees with that as they are all in Grover's pocket.

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (6629) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

Trevor, fact of the matter is the 1% sent these yahoos to Washington for the past forty years placing the country in debt to their offspring and thinking they will own us forever, I say we flip the tables and let them pay the bill they ran up.

99% Daddys Tax Now!!

[-] 0 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 2 years ago

But even then the banks and the federal reserve still have the money printing power which they can continue to use to manipulate the government and the economy. We NEED to take that power back and use it for good. As well it would stop inflation which is becoming a huge problem.

Raising taxes would be step one as it is the easier of the 2 to accomplish.

But I'm telling you... you should really get behind the idea of taking the power back from the federal reserve and the big banks. That's where Wall Street gets a lot of its power.

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (6629) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

Of course we need to take the power back from the banks that's like getting dressed before we go to work, that's the easy part, but we can't do that while their guards the GOP stand watch in congress.

The way you strip banks of power is pay back the debt, we take it from one account (trust funds) and put it in another bonds, pay off the bonds the banks lose power, the point of lending money is to obtain power over the one who borrows, our government has been giving our power to the banks/investors for decades by borrowing this money, we need to tell them it didn't work they have to pay their debt.

One only has to look to 'Chip Tatum" to find out the evil that is the "Bush Criminal Cartel"

Chip Tatum is endlessly interesting to listen to. He has many youtube videos with information that boggles the mind. Especially the ones where Ted Gunderson is doing the interviewing. Happy researching!!

He is a wonderful man. He served his country for many years. The problem is that you hate anyone who has a different opinion from your own.

[-] 1 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 2 years ago

And that guy that killed all those innocent civilians in Afghanistan served this country for many years and committed 17 counts of murder. Being in the service doesn't make you a wonderful person. He lead this country in the wrong direction, and he should be known for that.

I do not hate Bush Sr. I think both Bush's were bad presidents because of their actions, not their opinions.
